>> live from america's election headquarters, governor mitt romney saying america is in a jobs crisis. this, as the obama campaign touts a new report showing the unemployment rate dropping to 7.8%. governor romney citing millions of americans forced into part-time jobs and many who have simply stopped looking for week. in his weekly internet address, president obama says the new report shows the country is headed in the right direction. and new video out of israel showing an israeli fighter jet shooting down an unmanned drone inside their air space. right now, investigators are searching the drone's wreckage in the southern part of the country and israeli media sources saying it was not carrying weapons, but appears to be gathering information. and we'll be back at 6 eastern alongside rick fulbaum. >> paul: welcome back to the journal, editorial report. coming up in this half hour, the supreme court is back in session and promising to be another tumultuous turn as it references racial preferences and college admissions. could it be a potential pickup of republicans in the blues
time in his presidency. but is it enough to stop a surging romney? >> if we were to re-elect president obama i don't think we would measure up to the test of time. >> tonight, the one man who has debated both of them, senator john mccain joins me. >> frankly, i didn't expect the president to do that poorly. >> he knows when to hold them and when to fold them. ♪ know when to walk away and know when to run ♪ >> the legendary kenny rogers, taking on politics -- >> in all fairness i really wanted obama to be a great president. >> and talking about his music and his love life. oh, s, and we sing a duet. ♪ islands in the stream ♪ that is what we are >> this is "piers morgan tonight." >>> we begin with tonight's big story with just 32 days before the election, the new jobs report numbers are out and they are shaking up the race again. the unemployment rate fell to 7.8%, the lowest since january 2009, when president obama was inaugurated. he is hoping the new numbers will bring him a second term. he and governor romney know the election's all about the economy and both men were trading
. that is the most either side has raised in a month this election cycle. no word yet on the romney camp's monthly total, but the campaign does say it's collected more than $12 million in online donations since wednesday's debate. that's a lot. and it says it has seen bigger crowds on the trail since that debate. more on these stories throughout the next hour. >>> and tonight a newly confident mitt romney guess back on the stump in the sunshine state. he is holding a rally at 6:30 p.m. in apopka, florida, where he has been hammering the president's job record, despite a rise in national employment. with the romney campaign, garrett, is the governor sticking to his guns on the economy, or do the new numbers change things? >> milissa, the only new change is governor romney is going to have to retire one of his favorite lines, is the unemployment rate remaining above%. we expect that line to disappear. but focus will stay the same, with perhaps a bit more of a target, talking about the deficit and spending. you see the slogan we can't afford four more years like the last four years. governor romney h
a five-day, three-state tour of critical swing states that will likely decide the election. romney telling supporters in colorado that the president has run out of ideas and it's their state which could see his demise. >> he's out of ideas, and he's out of excuses. in november, we'll get him out of office. this is the state to do it. i'm counting on colorado. this could be the state that takes it over the edge. [ cheers and applause ] this is the state that could get us the electoral votes we need to win this. >> following a difficult week for president obama's foreign policy, the white house, for the first time, called the september 11th deaths of four u.s. citizens at the u.s. consulate in libya a terrorist attack. as the anti-u.s. rioting continued throughout the muslim world over an anti-muslim video produced in the u.s., the white house paid $70,000 for an advertising campaign in pakistan to show the administration's anger and sorrow. >> since our founding, the united states has been a nation that respects all faiths. we reject all efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of
candidate mitt romney in the election, presidential election polling this past month conservatives decided these polls showing an american electorate that is choosing president obama over mitt romney, these polls made them feel so uncomfortable they decided to develop a new fantasy electorate that they would poll in theory and their fantasy electorate which is not the real electorate would give them a much more comforting list of results in terms of their fake polls. it was the same dynamic at work when they invented conservative-a-pedia. something you read about the world on wikipedia, if it makes you uncomfortable as a conservative, conservative-a-pedia is guaranteed to only contain information that makes you feel okay. if you are discomfited by the idea the human species is a result of millenia of evolution for example conserve-a-pedia has you covered. not only has it been debunked by the obvious fact that humans and dinosaurs co-existed, but in fact according to conserve-a-pedia dinosaurs are actually still here and have been seen in new guinea twice since 1990. see if you don't like t
influenced by what happens in that election. if governor romney wins the election republicans will be less likely to come to the table seriously ready to talk about revenues. if the president win election he'll say that's a mandate from the american people we're getting rid of bush tax cuts. but the composition of the house and senate even though this lame duck session is the current congress what they see happening in november will greatly influence. the best thing, the best thing between now and election is for you to talk about this on your program. hopefully the candidates talk about it around the country and the american people in their votes on november 6th makes some kind of decision on this. you mentioned it didn't come up much in the debate. most candidates for congress won't talk about it because it requires tough choices. >> ali, even the people who have to fix this. we talk about the senators, a few senators who are starting to talk about starting to talk about a framework and we don't have an awful lot of time. between you talk to them and say look can you tell me what are you
when they first came out. some people are saying yeah that's the mitt romney we thought we elected. so how does that play with them? >> i quite frankly don't think it's that big of deal really. because we all know in an election campaign. the idea is you have your base, you turn out your base and then you appeal to others and it's like inviting company over or applying for a job, you want to leave them with the best impression. president obama did the same thing with great success in 2008. >> jennifer: at the debate though, j.d. mitt romney made a clear tack to the middle and made even remarks about how regulation is good and all of that. i'm -- you saw it i'm sure. do you think that that ends up causing some trouble with the far right or the tea party right at all or are people just so excited that he won the debate that it doesn't matter what he is saying now? >> the most anti-regulation person among us, i guess that would be me understands the needs for stop signs and stoplights and dare i say it even a federal communications board. so it not something wh
a lot in this election about what romney's plan will do to medicare beneficiaries, but what happens to medicaid beneficiaries? you cut medicaid by 600 or 700 billion, what happens to the people who rely on medicaid, the poor or children or elderly disabled across the country. >> i just put together some numbers on this in a report and i find that in the year 2022 while the affordable care act will lead to 33 million more americans having health care coverage, romney's plan would leave to roughly 18 to 20 million not having coverage. so this is a huge hit to the possibilities for insurance coverage in america. >> 50 million americans. jonathan gruber, thank you very much as always for being here. >> you bet. happy to be here. >> up next, the amazing steve martin gets political. .at the be world... ...you see they all have something very interesting in common. they have teachers... ...with a deeper knowledge of their subjects. as a result, their students achieve at a higher level. let's develop more stars in education. let's invest in our teachers... ...so they can inspire our student
of voters. one of the things that romney has been very self-conscious about this entire general election is being called a flip-flopper. he was concerned about this in the primaries, but he has stuck with this on the issue of immigration until recently. he has actually had some positions that have modulated. he took a stand on obama's executive action about some temporary visas being issued and this was the first time he had commented on it in about 100 days and it was the day before the debate. he gave a little more meat on the bones the day before the debate about tax policy. but you're not seeing him change his stance and i think what you're going to continue to see is this dual campaign where you here one thing in rallies and another thing in interviews. >> one of the things that's fascinating about that, he did not shake the etch a sketch after the primary. if anything, the moderate mitt we saw a couple of nights ago, it's surprising that we haven't seen the moderate mitt much earlier. do you think what's happened here is that conservatives become afraid enough that they thought he
force today as when the president was elected, unemployment would be 11%. >> romney says his plan creates long term jobs rather than part time work to get the unemployment under 8%, 32 days before the election. >> i will help create 12 million new jobs and rising take home pay. romney's debate performance is rising in polls inches ahead in ohio and virginia be it within the poll's margin of era. the tracking poll has the president up five points. in virginia, he met with miners blasting the president for waging war on the coal industry and the workers. >> i believe we should take advantage of it, put workers back to work, and use the resource that's abun adapt, cheap, and to be burned in a clean way. >> riding high, romney reminded a rally last night with fireworks and trace adkins that the president promised his stimulus gets unemployment lower than it is. >> he said right now, we would be at 5.4 #% unemployment. >> romney pounded biden for stating the administration's goal yesterday of a trillion dollar tax hike on those earning more than 200,000 or $250,000. >> they have been s
're losing and they're coming back for this election. mitt romney is a vehicle. you pointed out obama's hall in the money front. i read that romney is hauling in for the debate. he wants deregulation and benefits for the .01%. you're seeing that happen, and the tea party is willing to sit back and be quiet because they want to a winning candidate. >> eliot: they've made a fundamental pragmatic decision as they saw the campaign slipping away from them. >> we've seen this before in the republican party where you have a candidate who may not pay allegiance lip service to the movement conservatives, the movement right, the movement extremists but they want to win. you know what i think? i think we play an important role the media--not left will be right but accountability truth-telling, watchdog media needs to make clear to the american people what mitt romney and paul ryan's policies are on medicare healthcare. >> eliot: i think all that have is correct. but it runs a little deeper than that. there is a basic goodness to the american public. a sense of where mitt romney was going in the convect
president obama or newly elected president romney, deal with it in the winter in a substantive way, going so far as to reform the tax code, everything you want. do you think that's what's going to happen? >> i think that could happen, regardless who is president because the markets are going to begin to rattle their chains, it will be like a dungeon, say, look. >> why haven't they rattled? >> they're waiting for this to pass. >> anything could happen. >> they look at america as some the stupidest people on earth if they're going to let go over the cliff when you have a mindless sequester of 600 billion on defense, 600 billion with an ax, they're going to say you're dysfunctional and we want more money for our money and inflation kicks up and the guy that gets hurt the worse, the little guy that everybody talks about day and night. >> a funny thing happened on the way to the debate. neither candidate getting a question on that fiscal cliff. and so, if they are talking about it, as a time for taxpayers to start worrying about it? to ben stein, gerri willis and ben stein and charlie gasperino.
population go with governor mitt romney, could they actually swing the election? it depends on which state wii talking about. msnbc's richard lui has more from the critical swing state of virginia. >> i just don't know who's going to be able to kind of get to that middle ground, when the time comes. >> reporter: yet his vote could count most. it's because he is in virginia, one of a hand full of states up for grabs in the election. and as is said, as swing states go, so goes the election. 100% of them have been negative. >> reporter: in haresh's case, he voted for president obama in 2008, the first year a democrat won virginia since 1964. another reason his vote is valuable to candidate, he's asian american, and because of that, four times more likely to be an undecided voter, according to a new study. that group also makes campaign donations at a rate only second to whites. >> but this voting group isn't monolithic. most don't share a common language or culture. >> reporter: three out of four asian americans or pacific islanders are from 49 foreign countries, like haresh, who is from indi
side has raised in a single month this election cycle. no word yet on the romney camp's monthly total, but the campaign does say it collected more than $12 million in online donations. that is just since wednesday's debate. team romney is also rolling out a new tv ad today, featuring a former obama supporter, who says she has changed his mind. >> i'm disappointed in barack obama as my president, because he promised to bring us all together. and we're all going to be able to prosper. i don't see the prospering. >> and big news out of ohio, where an appeals court has upheld a ruling that reinstates early voting on the final three days before election day. the ruling means that people in ohio can continue to cast their ballots up until election day, depending on the decisions of local election boards. it's a win for the obama campaign, which has filed a lawsuit arguing everyone should be able to vote on those days. we'll have more on all these stories throughout the next three hours. >>> president obama today keeping his focus on jobs, as we have mentioned. the september jobs report show
august. the obama and romney campaign jumped on these figures and, of course, they came down on opposite sides. cnn political editor paul steinhauser joining us this morning. good morning, paul. so there's one month, hard to believe, till election day, and no issue bigger than jobs, right? >> no doubt about that, randi, and you're right. after what you could consider a tough week for the president coming out of that debate in denver the jobs numbers are a good sign for his re-election bid, a happy sign for the re-election team, but for mitt romney this is fascinating, landi, because the unemployment rate is below 8% for the first time since barack obama came into the white house back in january of 2009. you have heard mitt romney on the campaign trail over and over again, over the last year and a half running for the white house, criticize this president on jobs for the unemployment rate being over 8%. now it is under 8%. now it's time for mr. romney to have to pivot from his favorite line. take a listen to both candidates on the campaign trail yesterday reacting to the jobs numbers. >>
to come, mitt romney is making a move for the middle class, but it comes just a month before the election, so why is he doing it now and will it work at this point? plus, america blames soda and junk for seats dislodging mid flight. i mean american airlines. does that add up? and the outbreak of meningitis spreads across the u.s. with new cases and new concerns tonight in "outfront" look at how this got passed medical safety measures. stay with us. so, what do you think? [ engine revs ] i'll take it. [ male announcer ] it's chevy truck month. now during chevy truck month, get 0% apr financing for 60 months or trade up to get the 2012 chevy silverado all-star edition with a total value of $8,000. hurry in before they're all gone! the wheels of progress. seems they haven't been moving much lately. but things are starting to turn around because of business people like you. and regions is here to help. with the experience and service to keep things rolling. from business loans to cash management, we want to be your partner moving forward. so switch to regions. and let's get going. together. b
elected. promises get things passed, so now mitt romney says i'm going to create 12 million jobs over four years. 250,000 jobs a month. a ridiculous claim and what does the obama campaign do because morning in america sounds better than evening in america, the obama campaign says there's that's a low bar. we can do that, too. >> briefly here, you mentioned the idea of a conspiracy theory. this is the white house trying to mix it up. you don't buy that at all. >> not a little bit. bureau of labor statistics is a geeky, wonky organization. i love their website. they just, they're data geeks. i spoke to the labor secretary again to be reassured that even she doesn't see them until the morning of. sometimes, the president's economic adviser gets them the night before because if it's a really bad number, that person can go to the president and say we need to inform the federal reserve chief, but generally speaking, that is not the case. this is, look, i suppose anything's possible. it could even be a calculation error, but it is remarkable that the minute the numbers turn against conservatives,
. if that unemployment dropped from 8.1% to 7.9%, but mitt romney -- >> we are having problems with that story. the latest political news on our website, wbaltv.com, with the up-to-date information for state, local, and national elections. >>> they had fought for years to fight extradition. now four suspects are in u.s. courts. how they answered the charges against them. he was convicted of stealing the pope's private papers and linking them to a journalist. why he may not spend any time in prison, next. prison, next. >>> an extremist clear-cut and four other suspect appeared in court today hours after they were brought for into the u.s. to face trial. the preacher did not enter replete of charges he conspired to set up a terrorist training camp and at oregon and abducted 16 hostages. four other men pled not guilty. >>> the vatican says that the former butler of pope benedict is expected to get a papal apartment after stealing the pope's private documents and linking them to a journalist. he was sentenced to 18 months in prison. he said he did because he felt that the pope was not been informe
's what this election is about. for mr. romney, that was then. now on that, a number of issues, he seems to be trying to downplay what he once described as his severely conservative record and recast himself as more centrist on some issues. the shift began a moment after this handshake in denver. he was insistent on government regulation, education and health care. >> how would repeal it? >> it's a lengthy discussion, but number one, preexisting conditions are covered under my plan. >> that assurance is misleading, and later on an adviser had to clarify what mr. romney actually meant. under mr. romney's plan, he said, preexisting conditions would only be covered for people who already have insurance to begin with, but are changing jobs and, therefore, health insurance plans. that's not what most people think of when it comes to preexisting conditions. ironically, the health care law that mitt romney signed in massachusetts and remains in place, it does allow for preexisting conditions whether they have health cainsurance or not. we will be watching big bird and his good friend oscar the
.8%. >> but a major drop in unemployment just before the election has some questioning those results. mitt romney is campaigning in virginia today as well. he says many of those new jobs are part-time and that, he says, is not what a real recovery looks like. >> even those that have jobs are having tough times. the middle class is being squeezed with higher and higher costs and incomes that have gone down. >> but history says this latest jobs report could play a part in the election. no president has been reelected with unemployment above 8% since the great depression. but there is one more jobs report that comes out the first week of november just days before the voting. >>> here in d.c., we are paying $3.91 a gallon for gas. if you think that's pricey, be glad you don't live in california. overnight, prices jumped 17 cents out on the west coast to $4.49. that's the highest in the nation. and in many parts of the state, prices climbed 40 cents per gallon just this week. some gas stations have shut down. there's a supply shortage. a so-called perfect storm in california is what is causing this.
later it's 7.8%. for both presidents, unemployment generally trended down all the way to election day. as you might expect, president obama and governor romney saw these numbers quite differently and we have two reports tonight. first, nancy cordes covering the president and she's in cleveland. nancy? ncy?eporter: scott, you could practically see the relief on the president's face today and not just because this news helped to change the subject from his shaky debate performance. negh unemployment has been an albatross around his neck the past four years. today he mentioned the drop not once but twice starting in virginia. >> this morning we found out that the unemployment rate has fallen to its lowest level since i took office. ( cheers and applause ) more americans entered the work errce, more people are getting jobs. >> reporter: around steady rain in cleveland where president esida shared a coat with the supporter who introduced him, he made it clear to a crowd of 9,000 that he understands there's still a long way to go. >> there are too many friends and neighbors who are still lo
that some romney supportsers even suggested the numbers must be cooked. let's start with the debate. we'll walk you through some of the numbers you heard and some you didn't to explain where the election stands tonight. first number, that 7 .8%. this is thousand candidates responded. >> so it looks like employment is getting better. the truth is if the same share of people were participating on the work force today as on the day the president got elected, our unemployment rate would be around 11%. >> today's news should give us some encouragement. it shouldn't be an excuse for the other side to try to talk down the economy. just to try to score a few political points. gwen: on balance, 34 days out, what is the bigger deal? the worse deal? a bad debate or a good job number, dan? >> if president obama can turn around perceptions about the economy that ultimately will be a bigger deal. incumbent presidents have suffered through bad fist debates and been a table bounce back. if you have a really lousy economy it's tough to go against that. the interesting thing is that the obama campaign fo
, this is the day the president got elected. >> the president who spoke before romney saw that charge coming. >> today's news is not an excuse to try to talk down the economy to score a few political points. it is a reminder that this country has come too far to turn back now. >> there was more. the former ceo of general electric took to torture and in the airways suggesting the obama campaign cooked the numbers. >> i do not know what the right number is. these numbers do not smell right when you think about where the economy is right now. >> many experts laptop the charge but the labor secretary was not laughing. >> i am insulted when i hear that. it is ludicrous to hear that kind of statement. >> here is robert portman who plays president obama in debate operations. we will be doing this on saturday before running hold two events in florida. abc news, orlando. >> a sudden standstill in chinatown last night. they're capturing this video. at least 20 demonstrators chanting a disparaging remarks about the obama and romney campaign. >> tonight, there will be another much anticipated public deb
